Do you want to follow an excellent, new, international, fully English-speaking Master course?
You can choose between the Master's track in Classical and Mediterranean Archaeology and the Master's track in Prehistory and Protohistory of Northwest Europe. Both Master's tracks include different specializations: a specialization with the name of the track, a specialization in Bioarchaeology and Maritime Archeology, while a third specialization, Arctic Archaeology can be followed under the track Prehistory and Protohistory of Northwestern Europe. All tracks and specializations will teach you to tackle archaeological problems in a scientific way.
In the first semester, you will be introduced to the archaeological practice and its multidisciplinary character. You will discuss the role of archaeology in contemporary society and explore the relationship between archaeology and politics. You will strengthen your knowledge of archaeological theories that are used in collecting and interpreting data. In addition, you will carry out research on an excavation project. If you choose the track Classical and Mediterranean Archaeology, you will work on a project in Greece, Italy, Turkey, or Egypt. If your preference goes to Prehistory and Protohistory of Northwestern Europe, then you will carry out your research at a site in that region, or in the Arctic.
In the second semester, you have to do an internship. Finally, you will finish your degree with a thesis.

Each Master's degree program has a study advisor whom you can contact if you have questions or need advice about your degree program and other study-related matters. Everything you discuss will be treated confidentially. If you have a more complex problem, for example, a study delay, a performance disability, or if you are ill for a long time, you should contact a student counselor. In addition, you can also follow various courses at the Study Support section of the Student Service Centre (SSC), for example on study stress and holding presentations.
